Other points of interest[edit]


  1. After going through the blue door it is necessary to press a switch to open the door to the west. This switch also opens up a room with some monsters and a plasma rifle. Getting the plasma rifle lowers you to a nukage trench which has two candles on the floor marking a secret door leading to a soul sphere. (sector 37)
  2. Opening #1 also opens another door in the same nukage trench leading to a megaarmor, an armor bonus, three energy cell packs, a backpack, a box of bullets, and a box of shotgun shells. Both the door and the passage itself count as separate secrets. (sector 42)
  3. See #2. (sector 43)


This level cannot be completed on easy skill as there is no yellow key present in this skill.
